I have a droplet at DO 2gb cloud I spent a day learning to install and get Discourse running which I have for the most part it is currently a sandbox I suppose until I can figure out how to fully use and understand what I am doing.
I am with Kinsta for my wordpress and I use cloudflare
I have the DNS set up on cloudflare I have tried A pointing forums.cimmarian.com to the IP
I also took off the features of cloudflare and just have the DNS resolving for the IP and It always comes back unable to connect.
I ran the wizard.
I am just trying to get the DNS set up so I can make sure it is working with that domain before attempting SSO linking with my Wordpress etc.
As they say one step at a time and if I can figure out my DNS and why this may be happening.
I surfed around for awhile and kept trying to find topics to solve this but they all came down to DNS so I’m just trying to figure out why my DNS for DO won’t work with my website and DNS with my Kinsta Wordpress as I found topics saying you can have Wordpress and Discourse on completely different servers.
Sorry once again for taking your attention away from the platform to help troubleshoot some simpler issues.
